I went alone on this tour as I had 5 days holidays in the university. Actually, it was a study holiday and we were meant to study. This time I could not give my time to study and found it boring. This is the reason I took to going on this tour and good I did that. It was a fascinating experience and everything was new and unique. Things that I heard were right before my eyes and I just kept glaring at each place. I need to visit again to see with normal eyes and not glaring eyes. I recommend 5 stars.

I am happy to be a part of this tour. I came from this tour 2 days back and this is an awesome tour. The arrangements were good and the accommodations were more than perfect. The tour organizer ensured to see everything was in place and we were given the right schedule. No delay in traffic and other places of visit. I was a bit unhappy with the passengers; they looked like they were in their own world. None of them spoke to others and were happy with them. I was a bit put off initially, but by the tour end, I got used to.
